I received this Bobbi Brown pressed powder a few weeks ago and I was quite excited to give it a go, being the second Bobbi Brown product I’d ever tried. This sheer powder is formulated with Vitamin E to help boost skin’s natural radiance and is oil free and oil absorbing to keep oil at bay all day.
It comes in a nice handy compact with a mirror which I like as I can carry it around in my bag and always use it if I have a little shine coming through. It also comes with a puff but I have to say the only time I’ve used the puff is on the go, when I’m at home I use a brush.
The powder itself is lovely and soft and very finely milled. Also despite it being a pale yellow colour it doesn’t make you look sallow or an odd shade. It’s good for setting your makeup but I wouldn’t say it’s any longer lasting than my other powder.
The only thing I don’t like about this powder is I feel sometimes it can be a bit cakey especially if I have heavier foundations on, I can definitely see it sitting on my skin, especially around my chin which my other powder doesn’t do.
I really like this powder, but I do prefer my Illamasqua loose powder so I don’t think I would repurchase this with my own money.
